Had dinner here before a concert at the Mountain Winery. Glad we had a reservation as they were quite busy at 5:15 p.m! The service was excellent, the server was attentive without being intrusive. We both ordered the special, a halibut served on a bed...More

First, it's always safe to make a reservation at this fantastic restaurant. The Basin has a warm, cozy, neighborhood kind of atmosphere. The menu offer high quality food, and the deserts are too die for. My go-to favorite is always the delicious trout with asparagus....More

We arrived at opening 5:00. Service was great, very friendly and accommodating. We ordered the blue cheese wedge salad which was very good. For dinner we ordered the chicken and Trout, both outstanding. Would could back here again.

Geared for a younger crowd than we are in are 70's. Lots of energy, loud, many tables. We felt crammed against a wall on a very small table. Not a relaxing experience.
